This list of About.com’s Most Popular Halloween Costumes in 2009 has exactly zero matches with what my children or the children of anyone I know will be wearing. The number one costume on About.com’s list is Michael Jackson, followed by Harry Potter, “The Vampire” (generic costume for Twi-hards I guess), Miley Cyrus, Star Trek (whoo-hoo!), Zombie, G.I. Joe Ninja, and Hermione Granger. For the first time in many, many years, I’m going to wear a semi-costume — Spock ears and a Star Trek t-shirt. The full-on Mr. Spock costume was way too expensive — $49.99 for one version, $99.99 for another. My kids really wanted me to wear something, and hey, who am I to disappoint them?
But enough about me. What are your kids wearing this Halloween?
